What is a Brazilian butt lift?

A Brazilian butt lift surgery is a specialized fat transfer procedure that augments the size and shape of the buttocks and/or hips without implants. Dr. Robert Miles of Tampa Bay, Florida specializes in removing excess fat from the abdomen, flanks, lower back, or thighs with liposuction where a portion of this fat is then strategically injected into the buttocks.

Dr. Robert Miles’ specialty is to improve the proportions of the entire lower body with Brazilian butt lift surgery, helping a patient lose fat in common “problem areas” and enhance the buttocks, with results lasting many years.

The shape and proportion of a person’s buttocks are largely determined by genetics; both your skeletal structure and how your body stores fat influence the appearance of the lower body.  Brazilian butt lift surgery (BBL) can help overcome the effects of genetics by reshaping the buttocks and surrounding areas, such as the hips, lower back, and thighs.

What is involved in Brazilian butt lift surgery?

A Brazilian butt lift involves three basic steps:

  1. Fat is removed from the hips, lower back, thighs, abdomen, and/or other areas with liposuction
  2. The extracted fat is purified and prepared for transfer
  3. Dr. Robert Miles injects fat into specific areas on the buttocks to increase volume and improve shape

Recovering after your Brazilian butt lift

A Brazilian butt lift procedure requires some special modifications during recovery. While pain is typically minimal and easily controlled through pain medication, you will not be allowed to sit or lie directly on your buttocks for 4 weeks after a Brazilian butt lift.

Results are typically final within 6 months of surgery, after residual swelling has gone away and you are fully healed. By this time, your curvier buttocks and improved lower body proportions will be noticeable in how you look and in the way clothing fits.
